Goodyear UK has waded in to the fund raising cause for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution’s Flood Rescue Team.
The tyres company is funding a raft of specialist training and equipment for the uniquely trained arm of the RNLI, which takes part in worldwide rescues in flood hit regions.
Goodyear tyres have worked with the charity before and are pleased to be taking the relationship a step further by supporting its specialist service.
Michelle Fisher, Goodyear UK brand manager, said: ‘Through our previous fundraising for the RNLI we learned about the inland work carried out by the Flood Response Team and the amazing help that they have given so many people in areas that you wouldn’t necessarily think could be affected by such dangers.
“There is a synergy between our organisations due to our own commitments to safety – our wet weather specialist tyres are designed to save people’s lives in wet conditions, RNLI volunteer crew members save people at sea around the coasts of the UK and ROI every day.”
